    Hi Sarah, canned fruit would work great in this recipe! Canned rhubarb might be hard to find but you could try some canned pears and morello cherries. - GM

    Can you use canned fruit in this recipe or does it have to be fresh?

    This is not vegan because of the honey. Should not be tagged as such
